the country that has given him so much. this has been his goal since he was a kid. when president obama stopped the deportation of eligible youth last year, he opened the door of opportunity for young people and he pointed the way forward by establishing important principles to guide immigration reform. immigrants must take personal responsibility for their actions. if they do this, we must provide a meaningful path forward to become members of american society. we have every right to protect our borders but we must balance this with the need to encourage the aspiration of america's immigrants. these are the principles of the american people threw their support behind in november. these are the principles that guide immigration reform in the coming months. with these principles in mind, we need reform builds upon the following policy pillars. a pathway to legal permanent residents in three and citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants must be at the core of reform. number two is legalization should be earned. it should be a process and not a punishment proof of english-lang

in this job, there was a common denominator, a common theme in every country, the national government made investments in passenger rail. and finally, with president obama's vision we have a leader who has made a commitment in our country in the high-speed passenger rail act. and it's a strong commitment, and it will continue. our goal and their dream is to connect 80% of the country over the next 25 years, our best partners have been governor's, our best partners have been secretaries of transportation. our best partners have been the people with a vision. high-speed rail is about the next generation of transportation for the next-generation. every generation that has ever worked in transportation has left something important for the next-generation. previous generations have left american interstate system the best in the world. what we will leave to the next-generation is high-speed passenger rail. not for ray lahood but hopefully for my 10 grandchildren. that is our dream and you all have been helpful in realizing that dream. it would not have happened without a vision from president p

and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes great effort in chro

? , >> guest: is a countries whose future is uncertain, and certainly it could become -- and already is a bit off the path of democracy in my assessment, but the battle really isn't lost. the american government -- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a number of the shiite militia leaders in the rate con

have seen similar acts of terror in oakland and tucson and virginia tech, all across our country. we see the loss of life everyday all across this nation. after the unthinkable in newtown, president obama spoke about if we are doing enough to protect our children. the answer, he admitted, is no. that must change. that is why we are here today. we will hear from people who deal with the effects of gun violence every day. a wide range of experience and expertise when we will facilitate a discussion on it, then step the we must take to ensure that these tragedies will never happen again. i have a letter from the teachers of newtown, which i will enter into the record. but i will share one sentence. it says in our schools we need to strike the right balance to ensure that schools are nurturing while also say. safe. and we need to strike the right balance what the schools do not become in a place where they cannot be kids. we need to find and maintain this balance between safety and learning. as we move forward during this difficult time, collaboration, communication, value and the voice

or worse every single day across our country. because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns, nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat during the entire vietnam war. when i've talked with the vice president, i have made it very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures, three that need legislation and four that require only executive action. and we're hopeful the president and vice president will support all seven. and i just wanted to touch on each of them briefly. first and most you urgently, wed the president and congress together to require background checks for all gun sales including private sales at gun shows and online. these private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally which means that in 2012 alone there were more than six million gun sales
